Poetry. Engaging the same rhythmic propulsion established in her first book, Cheryl Pallant's INTO STILLNESS offers a compelling mediation on the sacredness of the body in the shadow of atrocity. Her kinetic poetry swirls historical fragments with dream, memory, flesh, violence, humor and ecstasy. In prose-like poems that surprise linguistically with their twists of meaning, INTO STILLNESS explores the tension between self and other, existence and death, the word and its silence.
